Follow the money. If a cruise line can make more money on a consistent basis, that's where they'll home port their ships. Bermuda is an expensive port for passengers and the cruise lines. It's expensive for the passengers due to port fees and it's expensive for the cruise lines because they have to close their shops and casinos while in port plus passengers are off the ship from morning until late in the evening. The only profit cruise lines make is from onboard spending. If people aren't buying drinks, using the casino or buying in the shops, there's little or no profit to the cruise line.I made one cruise to Bermuda from Norfolk on the Celerity Horizon. I loved it.
Celerity left Norfolk. We are the closed US port to Bermuda. Celerity please come back. Norfolk has a brand new cruise ship terminal but now the ships are gone. We have no cruise ships all summer and no cruises all winter.
Starting in Dec. 2012 Norfolk will have passenger train service.
